Lovely little unit. Review by Atria
Overall Score
Beautifully portable. For birdwatching, the small depth of field at 27 times zoom takes a bit of getting used to. For astronomy, the chromatic aberation gives a slight blue ring.around the moon, but not otherwise noticeable. For stars, best on a tripod, but light enough to be used handheld for birds (especially birds that have the decency to stay still :-) ). (Posted on 29/04/2019)
